Which is more powerful M16 or SKS?

The SKS packs a bigger round (7.62mm) than the m16 (5.56mm) but the m16 has a higher magazine capacity, better accuracy,and a higher rate of fire, so the SKS is more powerful, but the m16 is generally regarded as a better weapon.

What is best the M16 or M4?

Both guns are very excellent guns, but it just depends on the situation. If your in confined spaces, the m4 would be better due to its compactness; but if your outside, the m16 would be better due to its accuracy. Overall, I think the m16 is better, but that's just my opinion. Besides, there are better guns than the m16 series such as the m468 with its heavier round, and the scar with its interchangability between the 556 round and the 762 round.
